Shriram Iyengar
Chief Feature Writer

Shriram Iyengar belongs to the not-so-rare species of neuroses cinemanesis. A hassled Mumbaikar, he spends his mornings doing chores while singing Gulzar-RD Burman numbers. He claims a particular expertise in the 'Filmy Maa' species, the experiences of which he extensively documents on his social media pages. His penchant for Govinda hits is as notorious as his delirium of being a Shakespearean actor. When drunk, he can be spotted spouting poetry and his unabated love for Kalki Koechlin on empty streets. If seen, please drop him off at the nearest railway station.
